I am available for single engine private, instrument, and commercial training both in the air and on the ground. I can also get you through a checkout flight, instrument proficiency check (IPC), and flight review.

My belief is that if I learned how to fly you certainly can too. I'm here to help you develop confidence and a safety first attitude.

Please don't hesitate to reach out to me whether you are interested in accelerated training or a discovery flight.

Josh grew up in Perth, Western Australia and has been living in the US for the past 10 years after completing a study abroad in Bozeman, Montana. He began flying in Bozeman in 2017 earning his private, instrument and commercial rating. Flying in Montana ignited a passion to become a career pilot, which Josh has been pursuing ever since his initial discovery flight. Josh obtained his initial and instrument instructor ratings in Bozeman, where he continued to instruct for the past 1 ½ years, before moving to Oregon in the summer of 2021. In addition to his instructor certificates, he holds High Performance and Complex endorsements on his commercial license. Outside of flying, Josh is an avid skier and enjoys spending time in the great outdoors hiking and camping and exploring the Oregon coast. Josh looks forward to teaching and mentoring prospective and current pilots and sharing the gift of aviation.

Please reach out to Josh directly to schedule lessons at 801-649-7460.

I've been flying for a little over 20 years. My interest in aviation began many years before that, yet the process of becoming a pilot seemed mysterious and distant, so I did not pursue it seriously until a pilot friend invited me along for a "hundred dollar hamburger". It has cost a little bit more than that, and it has been well worth the investment!

I earned my private pilot certificate, then my instrument rating, added complex and high performance endorsements, then a commercial certificate, tailwheel endorsement, multi-engine rating, and after that instructor certificates - CFI, CFII and MEI. I’ve flown a growing variety of airplanes and enjoy adding new makes and models - and flying experiences - to my logbook. Flying has taught me quite a lot about myself and has introduced me to some lifelong friends. My career is in higher education; teaching is a big part of what I do.

I enjoy sharing aviation with others as a flight instructor and am available on many evenings, weekends, and summer days. I provide basic, advanced, multi-engine and instrument instruction, flight reviews, and endorsements for high performance, complex, and tailwheel aircraft.

Instructors available for flight reviews, proficiency checks, fill-in lessons, etc.

I started flying in 2016 as a freshman at Oregon State University after seeing an advertisement in McNary dining hall for the flying club and was hooked immediately. I continued to fly as a hobby while I finished my degree at OSU acquiring an instrument rating along the way. After graduating in mechanical engineering, I decided to focus on flying as a career and soon was a commercial pilot and flight instructor.

As well as instructing at Corvallis, I also work on-call for a medivac company flying Cessna Citation Jets every other week. I am available for full time instruction, club plane checkouts, flight reviews, and proficiency checks. I look forward to flying with you!

From a young age, I dreamed of becoming a pilot, and just a couple of years ago, I realized that dream was achievable. Now I'm excited to share that dream with you!

I have a flexible schedule that allows me to be available full-time for private, instrument, and commercial training, plane checkouts, flight reviews, and WINGS training. Whether you're brand new to flying or looking to build on your existing skills, I'm here to help.

My goal is to provide a supportive and safe learning environment. When you train with me, you can expect a personalized approach to instruction that's tailored to your individual needs. Safety is always my top priority, and I'll work with you to develop your skills and confidence in the cockpit. So let's go flying together! Contact me today to schedule a lesson.

Ken Honneffer

919-279-3295, email Ken

I started my flying career in 2002. During my private pilot training, with encouragement from my parents, I decided to make aviation my career focus. I received my PPL in 2003 as a senior in high school, then attended Ohio University in Athens, OH where I majored in Professional Flight and Aviation Management. I was hired by my first commercial air carrier in 2007, and have since moved on and now fly for a major US airline.

As a result of my "day job" my schedule for instruction is somewhat limited both in the days that I am home and also in the time that I am permitted to fly for compensation as governed by FAR 117. On FlightCircle you will likely see my name listed as unavailable at all times. I ask that you reach out to me through email, phone, or text and I will open up the time slot to fly if I'm able to do so.

I began my flying career right here in Corvallis over a decade ago. I learned to fly with the club and first became an authorized instructor in 2012. Becoming a pilot was the fulfillment of a childhood dream, and since then I’ve been blessed with a fun and fruitful aviation career. I’ve been an aerial survey pilot, a regional airline Captain, a corporate pilot, and finally a First Officer for a major airline. I’m thrilled to see my career come full circle back to Corvallis and look forward to instructing again.

I try to keep my flight circle schedule as accurate as possible, but because my airline job restricts my availability, please contact me in advance of scheduling.
